mass import of new Lab Profiles?

I have an existing known good Lab Profile. I want to be able to create say another 30 or 40 lab profiles that are identical to my known good. The all have exactly the same settings (same series, same timings, same parent etc) the only difference will be the lab profile name needs to change. Is it possible, or could it be possible to maybe create loads of identical new lab profiles from an imported csv or similar? At present and unless i'm missing something, i currently have to manually create the new profiles and enter all the details. It doesnt take a huge amount of time but would be handy if it could be more automated? Cheers

    Hi James - if i need to create a load of almost identical profiles based on a known good or template, its time consuming to do them one at a time. If the profile name is the only thing needing to change it would save time to be able to do a mass import and have the profile name (or maybe other settings as well depending on other companies reqs) set via a csv or similar. Cheers

    Could you help with some supporting reasoning for this use? With the template gallery you can certainly create a base template and spin labs off of it one at a time. Could you please establish what benefit spinning 30-40 profiles at the same time that are essentially identical would provide?
